Makram also contacted minister of Tourism Khaled Anany to follow up with the expat’s situation.
Two company owners deceived expatriates seeking to return back to Kuwait and alleged they can do so after spending a 14-day quarantine period in the UAE - including flight reservations and CPR tests - at the cost ranging between EGP 17,000 and 20,000.

The ministry concluded the statement by reaffirming that travelers to Kuwait must check the flight reservation documents for the entire trip and the hotel
